Hi, Leigh Gibson is my name and along with my wife Helen, we have been showing and breeding dogs since 1983. I jokingly call Karakush the ABC of the Australian Dog World, as we breed and show Afghan Hounds, Beagles & Chinese Cresteds.
Aside from breeding & exhibiting we also own and operate a Boarding Kennel & Cattery, so animals are literally our life. Having been Breeding & Exhibiting for just shy of 40 years now, we have enjoyed many great wins around Australia and Internationally, including multiple Royal Best In Shows and Royal Runner Up to Best In Shows with our home bred dogs. We have many times been Australia’s #1 Breeders of our chosen breeds. We feel one of our highlight achievements was in 2018, which saw Karakush Australia’s #2 Breeders All Breeds of the 1395 breeders registered. Along with the breeds we breed ourselves, I have also been highly successful several other breeds – English Foxhound, Italian Greyhound, Saluki, Smooth & Wire Fox Terrier, American Cocker Spaniel & Poodles to name a few. I feel diversifying the breeds I have groomed and prepared gives me a greater understanding of the individual needs of each breed and the right Plush Puppy product for the job.
Over the years, aside from Australia I have worked as a handler &/or groomer in America, New Zealand and India. Breeding and exhibiting Afghans, Beagles & Cresteds our grooming needs cover all the extremes. From long silky soft hair, to short hard waterproof coats, and supple fine textured hairless skin with plush flowing furnishings. For me Plush Puppy have all the bases covered, and never before has it been so easy to keep our show dogs, pets, puppies & boarders in dazzling Best In Show winning condition.
I feel Plush Puppy has a complete range of products that address all of my grooming needs. I have yet to have a grooming dilemma that plush Puppy didn’t have an answer to. I am not ashamed to say I have used many of the Plush Puppy products on my own hair with equally stylish results, but when it comes to our canine friends I don’t know how I would get by without Herbal Whitening Shampoo and Silk Protein Conditioner. Both of these products give amazing results on almost all breeds. The Herbal Whitening giving life and brilliance to all colours not just the whites. While the Silk Protein repairs damaged hair, prevents damage to hair and in general keep the hair in great condition to cope with all of our styling needs.
I’m not here to try and convince anyone to use Plush Puppy, BUT I am more than happy to talk to anyone about the Plush Puppy products I use and share with you my personal experience with the Plush Puppy range and why I choose Plush Puppy every time, and you will too!
